ATHLONE rider Cody Nally continues to lead the way on this season’s Irish motorcycle racing scene.
The 23 year-old, from Clonbonny, secured a fantastic hat-trick of wins at the opening round of the Adelaide Masters series at Mondello Park last weekend. This followed up his three wins on the Irish Superbike race circuit in recent weeks, capping a fabulous opening to the season for Nally.
The Athlone rider edged out Portadown’s Marshall Neill in the big Grand Final event in last weekend’s Mondello meeting, with Dubliner Derek Sheils in third. Nally also won two of the Superbike outings last weekend, with CD Racing Kawasaki man Sheils taking victory in the other, beating Nally by two seconds
Nally had started the season by winning three of the first four Irish Superbike races and maintained his form with a treble at the County Kildare circuit over the weekend. He won Superbike race one by seven seconds from Manxman Dan Kneen, with Sheils completing the podium positions. The second race saw Shiels narrowly beat Nally, with Waterford’s Brian McCormack third. Nally then won the third ‘big bike’ joust by 0.7 seconds from Sheils.
“I was delighted with the way I performed last weekend and to win ahead of veteran Marshall Neill and Derek Shiels, two of Ireland’s fastest riders in the last few years, was great. I want to thank my sponsors and all the people who support me, especially all the locals who came to Mondello last weekend,” said Cody.
